Wild ossabaws wean at 8-12 weeks. As of this week one of our sows has self weaned her second litter at 12 weeks without losing condition noticeably.

I don't recommend it for all breeds, but it's an interesting data point.

Anyone else had success with this? I've heard horror stories and approached it very cautiously both times I've done this.
